Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to wish you a light-filled, love-filled, laughter-filled end to your year! We are going to be taking a little break next week (mostly to catch up on shelter magazines and Breaking Bad), so wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR too. We'll be back next year with lots of new things including a new sample sale page, a new blog design (you can't wait, right?), new products, our 5 year anniversary (time flies!), new things to wallpaper...

Thank you so very much for helping make 2011 such a great year for us! It means so very much to have you read our blog and support - we appreciate it immensely. Here's looking forward to a very clever 2012!

Wild Dining

Gold is an all year thing, you know, so don't burn out on over the holidays, okay? I mean just check out this fab dining room accent wall pic from the lovely Vanessa De Vargas. Pretty, pretty!

Vasing Things Up

The quality of this book arrangement is almost as bad as the quality of the photo, no?

Be sad no more. Nothing like a Ferm vase and some horizontal placements to make things feel more crisp and colorful (and less grainy...)!

Talk about a love story... Don't you just adore this sweet chocolate shop makeover (including our wilderness wallpaper!) (via designsponge).

In case you want to check out what I'm giving and planning to receive...from my (very generous) self this year!

Out with the Old, in with the New

Striped wallpaper went up last night.* I love them even more than I thought I would. Starting the black stripe at the top seems to make the room taller and the horizontal placement makes the room feel bigger. It is like I'm living in a 500 sq ft palace.

In other news, I decided to makeover this tray because the three other patterns weren't enough. Will show your the afters if/when I finish the revamp!

*For the record, I don't recommend wallpapering at night in a room that lacks a proper overhead light.

Get a Jump on It

I try to avoid things that seem too trendy (unless they are animal print related...or birds. Wait, or stripes, or anything Moroccan. Oh, or faux furry or vampirey). [Side note: Notice I didn't say wallpaper because it is a proven CLASSIC!] But, how can I not get on board with Pantone's color for 2012, Tango Tangerine? Especially when it is right at my ferm finger tips. Let's start things off with a triangle of tangerine on one of my favorite pillows!
How about we butter up some toast on this orange buttering board? Sound good? So technically, you're right, it is more of a fiesta orange than a tango tangerine. But, no biggie, it is still bright, energetic, feeling positive, feeling employable, and will make your 2012 extra toasty!
Light it up, 2012!
Just a spot of tea? Just a spot of tangerine. So now, orange you glad it is almost the weekend? JOKE. But, really, aren't you so glad it is almost the weekend? Me too!

Bienvenido a Miami

I can't really explain how much I love seeing these Ferm Living vases in people's spaces, because they happen to be my favorite ferm item at the moment. I just got this one last month, and have another one the way. Trust me, they are good. Okay, you still don't trust me?

How about trusting Elle Decor then? See how pretty they look in the Elle Decor Show House in Miami? Images via Sketch 42.

Sound the Alarm

I think what we are seeing here is our fun chemistry flasks hanging out with a most beautifully designed fire extinguisher (via emma's design blog).

Like Butter

On the remote chance you're running out of gift ideas, here's one I'd like to add to the mix - Ferm Living leather. So pretty, so soft, so useful - just like butter, it makes life better. My tote is actually arriving today, so don't worry about getting me one :)

Confezioni Paradiso

Emanuela owns a boutique in Bologna and she sent us these sweet pictures of Ferm Living in her shop! So pretty! It is kind of amazing to think about Ferm Living growing from a very small wallpaper company to now being in shops all around the world.

Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

Check out our Robot wall stickers in Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine! Luckily, they are so easy to Styx on your wall. Get it? I know, long day...

Belle Tower

I hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sunshine yesterday. I spent mine bundled up in bed (my heater isn't working, so that was my excuse) with my new Belle mag (and then catching up on Boardwalk Empire - yes!). Why are the Australian's so dead on with design? Don't you just love that marbled textile thing that is happening in their Right Now trend section?

Another Right Now design item? What do you know, it is our Tower of Rings! Also did you know they make the Le Corbursier chair in outdoor fabric now? Me neither. Something to keep in mind for when I have 1) more money and 2) and outdoor seating area... In the meantime, I'll be considering whether to get those pretty napkin rings :)

Circus inspired decor is here! Which is good, because I like stripes. I also like the looks of that Circus book.

Oh yeah, velo bicyle pillow anyone? You know, I never really put the velo bicycle together with the circus. I guess I never get past thinking about how quickly I would injure myself if I tried to ride one to connect it to clowns. I actually have the tea towel because I love the graphic, so it is good to know I'm right on circus trend. Phew!

Also, can someone please photograph a beautiful picture of the sky for me, blow it up real big, frame it, and send it on over? Thank you!!

Pretty with Pink

Have you seen the newest issue of California Home and Design? SO GOOD, and I don't know when they started their online edition, but it makes me very happy because basically that is one more thing I can do on my iPad besides watching HBOGO. What also makes me very happy is seeing the way Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise used our Family Tree Wallpaper in this bedroom. I just adore it with that pretty pink bedspread. [Please forgive the blurry picture, and go check out the beautiful Venice house she designed at page 120!]

A Cozy Corner

Here we have my favorite Squares Blanket hanging out on my couch waiting for colder weather, which I hear is coming tomorrow. I think I've mentioned my obsession with BIG roses more than a few times before - well, they are finally happening! Turn on an Established & Sons lamp for a touch of The Olde Bell vibe - check! And, if you want to read more about the Teepee fabric pillow click right here.

A Circle of Dwell

Did you get your copy of November Dwell?

If you did, I'd imagine you were almost as excited to see our new Spear wallpaper in this circle of fabulousness as we were! It was hanging out right next to Hygge & West Knots. Love.

In case you did miss it, you can check it out on too. And on the off chance you can handle even more good news... Spears, along with all the new wallpaper designs at Ferm Living Shop, start shipping next week!
